Hungaroring NEC: Daruvala takes maiden Formula Renault win

The Josef Kaufman Racing driver started on the front-row alongside teammate Norris, who got a good start to lead Daruvala in the opening laps.

It was JKR 1-2-3 after Robert Shwartzman gained two places to third before Norris retired from the race handing the lead to Daruvala.

The Indian then led every lap to take his maiden win in the championship, his fourth formula car win of 2016 after three in the Toyota Racing Series.

Shwartzman finished second, 1.427s behind registering a JKR 1-2 as Ferdinand Habsburg completed the podium.

Hugo de Sadeleer made amends after torrid Race 1 to finish fourth ahead of Sacha Fenestraz and Bartlomiej Mirecki.

Max Defourny was seventh, Dorian Boccalacci eighth, Alexey Korneev ninth and Henrique Chaves completed the top 10.

Chaves lost a chunk of position after a contact with Nikita Troitskiy, having started third on the grid.
